Still Ironing Around Here...

...see my previous post.

I've been thinking a lot about this blog and where I want it to go. Does it need a focus, or do I want to just leave it as is--a place for my miscellaneous ramblings?

There are so many fabulously written blogs on every subject under the sun, written by people far more knowledgeble than I in those areas. I'm interested in many things, and I know a lot about a lot of things, but I don't have any new revelations or knowledge to impart that isn't already out there somewhere. Not that I have a need to be unique, but I don't want to be redundant. Hence my leanings toward allowing my blog to sort of evolve as it will and simply be an exercise in creative writing in favor of devoting it to a certain subject.

And my shop...I would love to see it take off but for that to happen there needs to be merchandise, and traffic! Two out of two of those are seriously lacking. The traffic will come as I travel around the bloggy world and get my name around, and the merchandise will come as I get busy again at my sewing machine (see my previous post...again!) Both factors are on the back burner for now. Simmering, soon to be served, but not yet.

I mentioned that I put in my two weeks notice at work. I have one week left and it seems that my manager is going to get all he can out of me for that last week. I'm supposed to have only fifteen hours a week and he scheduled me for close to twice that. Not sure if I'm going to say anything about it or just let it slide, knowing it's my last week.

My point is this: my blog is going to have to be on hiatus for a little while longer until I can get myself under control and refocus on the important things in life. A reboot of sorts. Lots of areas of my life are slipping and it's because I have allowed myself to get too busy. I need to focus again on my daily prayer time, daily work outs (gotta shed this poundage!), refocus on my son's school curriculum and lesson plans, figure out what direction to take or not take with this blog, and generally get my house in order. I'll be popping in and out, and my plan is to get back to regular posting sooner rather than later, but for now I'm pretty much hit and miss.

Basically, it's time to reboot my life! I find I have to do that every once in a while and then things function smoothly! :-) Thank God for His mercies that are new every morning!

"It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him."
